Pregnant !!

What to do ?


Help !

Pregnant !!!

O Shit!

  • His condom broke (or slipped) off, and he ejaculated inside my vagina.

  • I forgot to take my birth control pills.

  • My diaphragm or cervical cap slipped out of place, and he ejaculated inside my vagina.

  • I miscalculated my "safe" days.

  • He didn't pull out in time.

  • Why was I not using any birth control.

  • He forced me to have unprotected vaginal intercourse.

Now I need emergency contraception - Damn it! 

Well! Well! Well! Bloody Hell!

Okay! Let's get serious. First and foremost don't panic, maintain your balance (Is the demand more!) and if you have had unprotected intercourse and you think you might become pregnant immediately contact a gynecologist. Ask About Emergency Contraception.

What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraceptives are methods of preventing pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Emergency contraception can be used when a condom breaks, after a sexual assault, or any time unprotected sexual intercourse occurs. Do not use emergency contraceptives as your only protection against pregnancy if you are sexually active or planning to be, because they are not as effective as any ongoing contraceptive method. 

Emergency contraceptives available include:

  • Emergency contraceptive pills and 

  • The copper-T intrauterine device

Emergency Contraceptive Pills

There are two types of emergency contraceptive pills. One type uses hormones that are the same type and dose as hormones used in some kinds of ordinary birth control pills. These hormones are called estrogen and progestin (combined ECPs). Use of combined ECPs reduces the risk of pregnancy by about 75%.

Some people call emergency contraceptive pills "morning after pills." But you do not have to wait until the morning after. You can start the pills right away or up to three days after you have had unprotected sex - that is, sex during which you did not use birth control or your birth control may have failed. Therapy is more effective the earlier it is initiated within the 72-hour window. Your health care provider will tell you to take the first dose within 72 hours after unprotected sex. The provider will tell you to take the second dose 12 hours after the first dose. Each dose is 1, 2, 4, or 5 pills, depending on the brand. Not all brands of birth control pills can be used for emergency contraception. Emergency contraceptive pills require a prescription. Do not use then except under the care of someone licensed to prescribe.

Most women can safely use emergency contraceptive pills, even if they cannot use birth control pills as their regular method of birth control.

What happens after you take the pills?

  • Your next period may be earlier or later than usual.

  • Your flow may be heavier, lighter, or more spotty than usual.

  • If you see other health care providers before you get your period, remember to tell them that you have taken emergency contraception pills.

  • Schedule a follow-up visit with your clinician if you do not have your period in three weeks or if you have symptoms of pregnancy.

  • Be sure to use another method of contraception if you have vaginal intercourse any time before you get your period again.
